There is something special about lying on the beach in a retro inspired swimsuit- the glamour, the sophistication, inspired visions of cocktails by the pool, lazing under a palm tree and feeling like a you’ve stepped out of a Hollywood movie (instead of the hideous fluorescent lights at a swimwear outlet). Bombshell Bay brings something fresh, new and unique to the Australian swimwear scene- retro inspired swimwear with a touch of sass.
Head designer Emily was inspired from her childhood of long Summer days at the beach and a few too many ill fitting swimsuits. She met the challenge head on and created a range of beautiful, retro inspired swimsuits (each is named after a star of yesteryear, my favourite is ‘Miss Monroe’) in a range of classic blacks and playful solid hues. The silhouettes reflect the charm of yesteryear – sweetheart necklines, lower cut legs and playful ruffles all feature in the Bombshell Bay “Hollywood Bungalow” collection.
Each suit is made from a high quality Italian Lycra sourced for Bombshell Bay and the website even provides instructions (and a cleaning product) to keep your suit looking perfect.
